Christmas is coming…
Christmas is always a busy time for a brass band, and The Devon Hotel New Plymouth Brass is certainly no exception!
Our Christmas season begins on Saturday 25th November with the New Plymouth Christmas parade, beginning at the clocktower at 6pm.
This is followed on Saturday 2nd December, by the Bell Block Christmas parade at 5pm; and on Saturday 9th December, the Waitara parade at 10am and the Inglewood parade at 12 noon.
We will also be performing at Christmas at the Bowl on Sunday 10th December, and at Carols by Candlelight on the Hatchery Lawn in beautiful Pukekura Park, New Plymouth at 8pm on 17th December.
During all of this, we will also be playing Christmas carols around the suburban streets of New Plymouth for 10 nights, which is the band’s major fundraiser for the year. If you hear the band outside your house, please do come out and say hello, we’d love to see you!
A very special addition to our Christmas calendar is our ‘Christmas Showcase’ concert. This features of all our bands, from our youngest learners, to our most accomplished brass musicians. This year our concert is being held on Sunday 3rd December at 3pm in St Andrew’s Church. Tickets are just $10 available at the door only. We are very proud of what our band’s have achieved in 2017, and would love to share this with you.
